Juan Toscano-Anderson remembers one thing from Warriors camp as kid

Last week, Juan Toscano-Anderson signed a contract with the Warriors for the rest of the season.

By doing so, he became the first Golden State player ever to have attended Warriors Basketball Camp as a kid.

The 26-year-old grew up in East Oakland and attended the camp when he was in third grade.

"I do not remember too much," Toscano-Anderson told Mark Willard on KNBR 680 on Tuesday night. "One thing I remember is just being at the Marriott. When you're a kid -- the practice facility is at the hotel -- and when you're a kid, you're always looking for the pool.

"I do remember looking over the balcony into the pool and I'm like, 'Oh, that's a nice pool.' That's one thing I do remember."

This makes perfect sense and is very relatable.

Toscano-Anderson -- who attended Castro Valley High School -- is averaging 4.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 15.7 minutes over three games so far.

He has made a lot of Bay Area residents proud.

Warriors' Juan Toscano-Anderson makes fun of 49ers fans while mic'd up

Juan Toscano-Anderson is in his second season playing for the Santa Cruz Warriors.

He was mic'd up during a recent practice in Surf City, and had a lot to say about the two NFL teams in the Bay Area.

"I'm a Raider fan, so I learn to bet with my mind and not with my heart," he explained. "Because those guys let me down every Sunday. Being a Raider fan is like being in a toxic relationship. But you know what -- I'm still going to root for them.

"Being a Niner fan is the worst thing on planet Earth. I feel bad for anybody who's a Niners fan."

The Golden State Warriors' organization loves Toscano-Anderson.

The 26-year-old -- who grew up in Oakland rooting for the Dubs -- not only suited up for the Warriors' 2019 Summer League squad, but he was with Golden State during training camp a couple of months ago, and appeared in five preseason games.

In 16 minutes against the Lakers on Oct. 16, the 6-foot-6 forward showed off his terrific defensive skills by recording two steals and three blocks.

Through 19 G League games this season, Toscano-Anderson is averaging 12.3 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals, while shooting 49 percent from the field.

He's extremely versatile and will dunk on you.
